A train of CN RDC's makes an interesting stop during a Upper Canada Railway Society fantrip: a tour of the GMD locomotive assembly plant in London, Ontario. The three cars are seen parked on trackage inside the Oxford Street plant grounds, as fantrip attendees stretch their legs and socialize outside.

According to UCRS information, the fantrip consist on this day was CN RDC-1 6116 (pictured leading here), RDC-9 6003, and RDC-1 6116 on the opposite end. Stops on the trip included Toronto, London (including a tour of the GMD locomotive plant), then up the Exeter Sub to Goderich, then Stratford via the Goderich Sub, down the Drumbo Sub to Paris Jct., and Burlington.
